Overview

About Gamirasu Cave Hotel

Restored cave hotel in Cappadocia.

Former prison and monastic cell cave house.

Gamirasu is an exquisitely restored eighteen-room cave house, in Ayvali Village near Urgup in the heart of Cappadocia, Turkey. In former times housing the cells of a prison, this ancient monastery is steeped in history. If you want a luxurious cave accommodation in a traditional Cappadocian village, then this is the place.

Comprised of six beautifully restored and integrated cave houses, all 18 rooms in the Gamirasu are designed in harmony with the natural fairy chimney surroundings, as well as  the comforts of a modern hotel.

Set in the heart of Cappadocia, the Gamirasu is an intimate and exquisitely restored Byzantine monastic retreat with a well deserved reputation of being one of the best hotels in the region. They focus on service, attention to detail and the warmth of a home away from home.

A 12th century Byzantine Christian church forms part of the Gamirasu, and until recently, part of the hotel was still used by Christian monks.  Much care has been taken to blend the historic facades with the natural curves of the Cappadocian landscape to preserve its traditional style and appearance whilst providing you with the utmost in modern conveniences.

BEAUTIFUL AND UNBELEIVABLY GOOD....

After an hour or so of darkness on a good but dusty road, then a jumble of houses for a village, our driver dived between some buildings down a steep, narrow ravine - very Indiana Jones. We had reached the Gamirasu Hotel on one side of the stream and on the other were dimly lit caves used for farm animals. Still in fantasy land, we heard the nightingales singing - but not on a tape. Immediately on entering the hotel we were welcomed as family, music was playing - a saz accompanied by a drummer - mesmerising and tiredness all forgotten. The staff were endlessly helpful and fellow guests were relaxed experienced travellers not tourists after pompous formalities - many were repeat clients. Breakfast was amongst the best ever - such flavours in the honeys remains a fresh memory. All the rooms were different, some better than others as you would expect as scraping out the soft rock to create caves is not a spirit level job. Their choice of guide was brilliant - Remzi, an academic with a superb sense of humour and the great history teather you never had who brought everything to life. A great base for exploring, walking, riding, finding all the flowers you thought were indiginous in England. The scenery inspired us and Gaudi earlier as he must have been on a high throughout.
